Last week when I had literally just gotten off the plane and arrived home, within seconds Ernie staggered out from undeer the deck sporting a very large puffy back paw. Of course, we zoomed off to the vet. Bad news. he had been bitten by something vicious almost to the bone, he had to stay overnight at Pet A & E, have an operation the next day and be on antobiotics for 5 days. Z
Picked him up from the Vet's on the Friday afternoon and handed over my hard earned cash.
Saturday morning had to take the rabbit (Daisy) to the vet to have his wonky tooth lasered. At this point I figured I may as well leave my wallet at the vets - I offered that but Vet claimed my wallet was empty. Note to self: check what type of car he drives.
This week when i got back from my tripping about, took Ernie back to vet to have the drain removed from his paw. Antibiotics don't appear to have worked as well as they had hoped. They decided to weigh him to see if they had the dosage right. Nope. he weighs in at 5.3kgs...more antibiotics but stronger dose. At least the wee fella is happy to eat them up and we don't have to hide them in food etc.
This morning I notice that Daisy is off his tucker. he also has a dodgy eye. Back to vet where we extract a large grass seed. KERCHING. KERCHING. He now needs eye drops 4 times a day to ward off any possible ulcer.
I need a drink.
Perhaps a VELVET HAMMER:-
3/4 ounce Tia Maria 9or other coffee flavoured liqueur)
3/4 ounce Cointreau
3/4 ounce light cream
Shake all ingredients together with ice, strain into cocktail glass.
Actually, if you've had a few days like mine maybe double the recipe!!
I took this photo while in Dunedin last week. You might even find me in there...I'm looking into all phone boxes incase Dr Who is there!
